in vb:

Shell(command) will execute any exe...

so u cud do stuff like:

'main fn

sub main()


Shell(PATHTOFIXES & "\kb822150 -Z -Q")
Shell(PATHTOFIXES & "\kb823559 -Z -Q")
Shell(PATHTOFIXES & "\kb833330 -Z -Q")
Shell(PATHTOFIXES & "\kb833987 -Z -Q")
Shell(PATHTOFIXES & "\kb840987 -Z -Q")
Shell(PATHTOFIXES & "\qchain.exe")
end sub

for the gui stuff, just create a form....add a button...
and execute this Shell command in the click event...

or if u want to change the command that is executed, add a textbox

and do a Shell(Textbox1.Text) or the button click event

what software would I need to create this form
Erm... Visual Basic...  ;)

No, seriously, you can't create forms in a VBS -- you may be able to do it with some VBScript in an HTML page, in which case, you would use the HTML form controls.

But for pure VB, you'd need VB.
